A Darker Eye
From the top to the bottom of the spine
It sent chills, a darker figure then I
His rise my fall, a take over as I crossed the line
Consumed by hatred fear strikes the dome the eye
Brown to a darker grey, a change, a loss of identity
No more the man let alone the word proud
A look of familiarity, with open arms I'm welcomed
‘I don't belong here'
‘yet you chose to come'
‘you darkened my path, my vision wasn't clear'
‘you talking like I twisted your arm'
‘but you did'
‘no little man, it was temptations whisper ‘
‘you tricked me'
‘I gave a suggestion, never forced your hand. You just never questioned'
Rejection of the lighter self to a darker consumption
A choice of one's deception or deep reflection
My journey may end on a hellish notion
Slow motion of a burning sensation
No such thing as wrong choice but consequences do exist
For every action there's a reaction
Though never too late to make the choice and make amends
The reaction of my actions is the loss of my innocence
Dear angel tell father I'm sorry.
